The People to Profit Development Framework™


“Your people are your most valuable assets. Solve your people problems and you will solve your process and profit problems.”

Dr. Cherita Weatherspoon


We empower organizations to empower people.

We help organizations improve communication, problem-solving, and profit; shape organizational culture, and improve leadership impact.

Our communication, leadership, organizational restructuring, and diversity & inclusion services will help you build a corporate culture that encourages your team to collectively meet and exceed your organization’s performance and profit goals.

Through speaking, training and coaching we will help you build committed and capable teams who move your mission forward.


We help organizations empower and equip their employees to improve performance, productivity and profit through mission alignment, communication, and leadership.

The work we do with organizations as coaches, trainers and consultants is guided by a foundational belief in the value of people and the ability of people to accomplish amazing things when in an environment that supports, encourages, and nurtures their greatness; and, when the work they do matters. The keys that are critical to developing this type of environment are Clarity, Communication, and Connection.

Whether your audience is College Students, Faculty & Staff, Non-Profit or Corporate Employees, or Executive Leaders, we will present a program that supports mission alignment, leadership development, organizational culture, or organizational change that will help improve employee morale, impact performance outcomes, increase productivity, and ultimately increase profit. You can choose a keynote presentation to motivate and inspire, a workshop to engage and learn principles, a training session to change behaviors or methods of operation, a leadership or executive coaching package for an individual review of challenges, goal or strategy development, or work-life balance; or a consulting package that focuses on strategy and implementation.

Each of our programs has three primary goals:

  1. To engage the audience with relevant, inspiring, relatable, and applicable content.
  2. To elevate the thinking and related behaviors of audience members.
  3. To shape a renewed commitment to excellence, trust, and loyalty among employee stakeholders.

While the process varies for each program in how we engage with audience members to accomplish these goals, the goals remain consistent.
